Prayer's Light


Prayer's Light

Glowing dawn crept upon me
as I lay awakened amidst trembling dreams
Wanting sleep, not to weep, no tears left,
feeling bereft, nothing to hold me
Open arms and an ancient heart waits 
silent and unfolding in the days light
Tearing at my soul, it feels, it needs all night
Need to release the shredded fight that controls my sight
Crying and bleeding in endless wanton fright
Only a glimpse of salvation comes with a prayer's light

It is good to have whole-hearted prayer and that glimpse offers hope to carry on. A glowing appeal to seeking that which is beyond our mortal eyes. Thank you for this enlighting work!



I am so pleased you enjoyed the Prayer's Light. It does offer refuge from a difficult spell. My intention was to use it for myself, but in sharing it, it touched so many others, of which I am grateful.

A long long night, sad and bereft, awaiting the aid of the clear light.




If I feel physically as if the top of my head were taken off, I know that is poetry.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) American poet.
